Volunteers make BEAR possible!
With so much uncertainty filling all of our lives, we at BEAR aim to do our part to ensure there is still certainty in our mission of providing essential resources to abused and neglected children in our community.
As of today (3/16), our hours of operation (Monday-Friday; 8am-4pm) will remain the same, while our staffing needs will be adjusted to reflect safety and social distancing practices. This is an aspect we will address on a day-by-day basis; if changes occur we will alert you.
Additionally, to comply with recommendations by both local government and the CDC, ALL volunteer opportunities have been canceled until further notice. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and look forward to seeing our wonderful volunteers in our warehouse again when it is safe to do so.
